					How to Use the Transfer Guide
The arrangements for transfer credit recorded in this Transfer Guide apply to courses or
programs taken during the 2010-2011 academic year (September 1, 2010 to August 31, 2011).
Credit for courses taken previously is normally governed by the appropriate Transfer
Guide for the year in which courses were taken. Students who have interrupted their
studies or spread them out over a longer period of time should seek advice from the
institution which the student wishes to enter to determine the current status of transfer
arrangements.

Section 1 provides an overview of the public post-secondary system in the province.

Section 2 of the Transfer Guide lists credit transfer arrangements on a sending institution basis.
Due to the fact that transfer agreements between the public post-secondary institutions are not
necessarily two-way, the tables in section 2 are to be read from sending to receiving institution
only.

   Example 1: A student has successfully completed some courses at College of the North
   Atlantic and wishes to find out if he/she can transfer any of those credits to Memorial
   University. In this case, College of the North Atlantic is the sending institution and Memorial
   University is the receiving institution.

   Here’s how to find out if there are any credit transfer possibilities:
       Go to page 17 where College of the North Atlantic is the sending institution.
       Look to see if any courses successfully completed are listed in the sending column.
       If so, go across to where Memorial University is the receiving institution and the
          corresponding course to which credit transfer is granted.

   Example 2:
   A student has successfully completed some courses at Memorial University and wishes to
   find out if he/she can transfer any of those credits to College of the North Atlantic. In this
   case, the university is the sending institution and College of North Atlantic is the receiving
   institution.

   Here’s how to find out if there are any credit transfer possibilities:
       Go to page 33 where Memorial University is the sending institution.
       Look to see if courses successfully completed are listed in the sending column.
       If so, go across to where College of the North Atlantic is the receiving institution and
          the corresponding course to which credit transfer is granted.
       For more information refer to page 16.


IMPORTANT NOTE: The courses listed in section 2.1 are not necessarily available at all
university and college campuses. Please consult the appropriate institutional calendar for more
information.
Section 3 provides a listing of groups of courses which are transferable as a block to other post-
secondary institutions.

Section 4 provides transfer of credit information for three programs linked to high school: the
Advanced Placement program, the International Baccalaureate program and the Adult Basic
Education program.

Section 5 provides an explanation of terms related to credit transfer.

Section 6 provides a brief description of the admission requirements and transfer policies of each
public post-secondary institution.

It should be noted that:

1.     The 2010-2011 Transfer Guide identifies where special transfer agreements exist for
       similar courses.

2.     The Transfer Guide indicates the minimum transfer of credit which is available for prior
       post-secondary educational experience upon admission to another post-secondary
       institution. Additional transfer of credit may be available on an individual basis.

3.     The tables in section 2 are to be read from sending institution to receiving institution
       only. Transfer agreements are not necessarily two way.

4.     The information in this Transfer Guide is the most recent available at the time of
       publication. However, due to ongoing negotiations between institutions there may be
       instances where information is incomplete. Updated information will be provided online
       at http://www.gov.nl.ca/edu. Should questions arise, the user is encouraged to reference
       institutional calendars and consult with Registrar/Student Service Offices.

5.     Transfer is sometimes possible for courses or programs not contained in this Transfer
       Guide. Such arrangements are generally considered on an individual basis. Students
       seeking special consideration are advised to consult the Registrar/Student Service
       Offices at both the sending and receiving institutions.

6.     Where no entry or a blank space appears in the receiving institution column of the
       course-by-course tables in section 2 of the guide, this indicates that no formal transfer
       arrangement or established precedent has been identified between the sending and
       receiving institution at the time of publication.
